If you build a kitchen inside somebody's house, it doesn't mean it is yours at all.

Valve never bothered trying to get the Dota name until recently, Blizzard responded within a day.

Really it's more Valve's fault for not trying to get the name sooner.

Except your wrong in this case, because they used blizzards work for it, blizzard could be entitled to certain rights

Also you forget that blizzard is a billion dollar corporation and the lawyers they could get could win the case

Namebranding is INCREDIBLY important to companies, Valve screwed the pooch on this one. Especially since its Bliz they are fighting.

Blizzard doesn't **** around when it comes to litigation.

Valve can call their MOBA whatever the hell they'd like and it will still beat whatever Blizzard is churning out.

Downvote all you'd like. Gabe decided to run his gaming company with a focus on passion for the work produced as opposed to passion for making a profit. The guy makes bank, but he could be making so, so much more money with much lower quality products. He chooses not to do that because he actually cares about gaming as medium.

Riot Games also counter-filed against the Dota trademark, which I find absolutely ****ing hilarious because Guinsoo and Pendragon didn't do jack **** for Dota.

Blizzard has a very good and accurate claim.

Would be like if another company made "League of Loreweaving 2" with "Jaxx" and "Master Yii".

And then further implied that it was the sequel to League of Legends in advertising.

DotA is a separate game, not owned by Valve, and has been a community project.
